Another smackdown

As opposed to our Dear Leader who hasn’t bothered to talk to the folks at BP and has not yet learned that talking tough when you have never demonstrated any history of, nor capacity to, nor stomach for following through just makes you look like an impotent, weaselly wuss,  consider for a moment this statement from someone who actually has a clue what she’s talking about:

(from Sarah Palin’s facebook page)

Mr. President: with all due respect, you have to get involved, sir. The priorities and timeline of an oil company are not the same as the public’s. You cannot outsource the cleanup and the responsibility and the trust to BP and expect that the legitimate interests of Americans adversely affected by this spill will somehow be met.

Seriously.  Go read the whole thing, and then come back and tell me this isn’t the sanest public statement you’ve seen regarding the oil spill.

    Remember how I was telling you about that 76 year old woman who talked to me for over an hour on the New Orleans survey? She was telling me that she thought it was wrong that they were out sourcing people to clean up the spill when there are plenty of people down there who need jobs and would help. She also said that the President only saw the spill from a helicopter the first time he went and that wasn’t good enough and he couldn’t possible know how bad it was from up there. She also stated that she felt that if they shut down all of the oil industry it would be horrible for the economy down there because the fishing industry isn’t the only thing people down there do, people also work for the oil companies. She was a pretty interesting old lady to talk to. She also seemed to think that the 2nd trip for the President might do him some good, you know where he actually got out and looked around on the ground and got in it.

    As you can imagine, this is near and dear to my heart. (Or maybe you can’t….reminder: I grew up in south Louisiana)
    This was good. Thanks for posting.
